Sudbury: Gerry Labelle[edit]

Gerry Labelle was born in Mattawa and raised in Sudbury. He is a businessperson and community activist in Sudbury, where he operates a consulting firm.[14] Labelle is a founding member of Music and Film in Motion and has served on the board of several non-profit organizations. At the time of the election, he was a member of the Make Poverty History committee on the city's Social Planning Council.[15]

Labelle became involved in a minor controversy during the 2008 campaign when he made statements in a French-language interview that seemed critical of the Conservative government. According to a press release from Liberal incumbent Diane Marleau, Labelle criticized Finance Minister Jim Flaherty for describing Ontario as "the last place" to invest, took issue with the government's decision to abolish the Court Challenges Program of Canada, and said that he was not impressed with the Conservative Party's environmental record. He later issued a retraction, saying that he had not expressed himself clearly and was fully supportive of the Harper government.[16] Labelle also spoke in support of the arts community and rejected arguments that his party was hostile to the arts.[17] Late in the campaign, the Sudbury Star newspaper noted that he "did not come across as a Harper Conservative".[18]

Labelle received 11,073 votes (25.79%), finishing third against New Democratic Party candidate Glenn Thibeault. He has said that he will probably run for Conservatives again.[19]
